Solemn Profession

Solemn Vows

Congratulations, Br. Thomas! For those who have no  idea what’s going on in this picture, Br. Thomas is lying prostrate before the altar. During solemn vows, the monk, while making his profession, is covered with the funeral pall, signifying his dying to self so he may raise with Christ to new life. Arise, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will enlighten you.

I’m usually a laid back person. I love to read. I’m a history nerd. If I could go back in time and meet just one person it would probably be Pope John Paul II. I’m married to my best friend. Fall is my favorite season. The Giant Panda is my favorite animal. I love it when you go somewhere, see something, or even eat something and it bring back memories from your past. I love the smell of rain. Oh, and by the way, I’m Leila (lie-luh).
